Anyone ever go on a Police ride-along???
I am interested in getting into some field of law enforcement. Be it police, highway patrol, ATF, FBI, etc. I want to go on a police ride-along. Is there an age limit? I'm almost 21. Have anyone else ever done one? How do I go about setting it up. Thanks guys, REDROCK

bro I've been on several (back in the day) ... just go down to your local PD and ask the desk srgnt. Its pretty cool man! I wanted to go into law enforcement in the early to mid 90's but the money sucks ... I ended up in medical sales .. money is awesome but not much action

I don't believe there is an age limit. I would imagine if you went down to your local station you could sign right up.

Geez, I was a cop in the USAF, K-9 trainer. When I got out, I thought about becoming a civilian cop, but thought better of it . . . they screen out the worst nuts before they take 'em into the military, but in the real world, ya gotta deal with all sorts of idiots. Nah, the risk ain't worth the $$$, not in civilian life . . .
If you've got your heart set on police work, why not join some branch of the military? You'll get practical experience you can use if you still want to do the civilian police thing when you get out, not to mention the usual GI benefits. If you do, I've got a tip . . . volunteer for one of the K-9 units. It's way cool, and you get better work assignments. Oh yah, the USAF has the best living conditions, but it's harder to advance in rank than the Army or Marines (harder to lose it, too).
